Ours is a licker, I would say his licking has calmed down over time. His licking at times seems like it was obssesive, at one time we would have him on the bed in the morning with us, he would lick the bed sheets, the pillow case on the pillow and hubbys face!!!! We had to tell him to stop.....because like you said it can get annoying at times, I know even though they are sooooo darn cute :) He is now 5 and still licks but not nearly as much. When he was a pup I absolutely had to put a stop to him licking the speaker on the bottom of the rear projection tv we had, gross!!! lol A NO....actually worked for that, the other things took repeated NO's lol. Maybe he was obssesive with the sheets, and pillow case, and hubbys face cause he was soooo exicted to be up on the bed with us, since it wasn't something he didnt get to do on a regular basis.
Loves to lick companys feet as well :O Not everyone is a fan of that, but I really think that is an affection lick. Tonight, I got some licks on my face, but it was a few and that was it, like I love you <3 I know I was never a fan of a dog licking me, and now I tolerate it from my own dog, cause hes mine.
A neighbor of mine told me that when a dog licks you, it is their way of taking care of you?? Has anyone else heard of that, first time I heard that one!!
Frosty tries to be a licker, but I absolutely can't STAND excessive licking, so we always nip it in the butt ASAP. Frosty is allowed to give just a couple kisses, and then he has to stop. He is pretty good about stopping it when you tell him. Every now and then he forgets and tries to lick the same spot on his body/toys/furniture repeatedly and we have to tell him to stop. No licking in the morning though, then its mostly jumping up and rebounding off of us lol. I don't think its just a corgi thing though; my parents have a border collie/black lab mix who licks constantly (expecially the sheets and my stepdads feet yuck!!). Here are a couple more discussion on licking:
